For the comment made by DUH - you are so uninformed.

99 weeks is it - and no more. You should learn the facts before you make comments. The 13 week extension was only for people who had not reached the 99 week mark. The media needs to to clarify this

Sorry - I meant to say the 13 MONTH extension is only available to those who had not used up all of their 99 weeks.

Trust me re: this fact since I am living this horrible nightmare.

yep, it's all statistical manipulation to cover up the real numbers which include those still unemployed and no longer receiving benefits and those underemployed. reality check is closer to 24 - 25%.
btw, you know there's serious trouble when the pharmaceuticals start downsizing. see new article regard abbott.

Hey BallSac - you are still wrong. Please do your homework.

& btw; your friends w/ Masters Degrees should have gotten Masters of Science instead of Masters of Arts - then they'd have gainful employment instead of working at CitGo.

Message to "Truth"...

You use the term "marxist" & throw in George Soros' name...

In EVERY post you submit.

Yet there is NEVER an explanation as to what you mean by using this.

I challenge you to discuss Marxism WITHOUT looking at Wiki or any other source...bring it straight from the head,and not from Fox.

Methinks that you would like Soros,as he champions the legalization of marijuana.

You've definitely had a hit...

Of something!

p.s.- and besides screwing up your mind,it also affected...

Your spelling.

God Bless you,dude.

Read the files on the case. The case is still active and you know it. You marxist have tried so hard to kill it and you might ask why have they ramped up their advertizing with Fox trying to buy them off. But they will report it and when they do unlike the local drive by news who live off of Nationwide do not report the news. So tell us who you work for so you can be called in on it. Oh dont bother we all ready know who you are.

Truthy,

Thanks for FINALLY providing a full post with correct spelling.

But man,it's sad that do not understand "methinks."

That lets me know that the 8th thru 12th grades was a BIG struggle for you...

Particularly English...naw,you probably went to auto body school.

Shakespeare loved that term.

Deshoukaj.

p.s.- I will continue to "homie skool" your dumb butt.Touche!

Anyone one can say at any time that the numbers don't count the people who don't work, all they can do it count the numbers who are on unemployment insurance, on state welfare services, and those registered with county and states ran workforce centers. Didn't know that employment agencies were counted, guess again. When I went to register at my workforce center after I was laid off, the lady doing the required presentation told us we would be counted as well, also people who get cash benefits or food stamps have to register with the workforce center as well. So if your actively looking for a job, more than likely your counted. Anyways this is a good thing, were adding much needed jobs, you think a few of you would be happy about that. I guess easier to look at a glass half empty than half full.

If Obama is re-elected your unemployment will be massive due to his war on coal and all the businesses that are supported by nining in your reigon.

Bye, bye home values. Don't think it will not effect you just because you don't work for a mining company.
